Description

Helleborus HGC® Lola, a cherished member of the Ranunculaceae family, is a powerful perennial celebrated for its captivating blooms and enduring allure. With a compact stature, Lola boasts evergreen foliage that remains enchanting throughout the seasons.  Helleborus x lemperii Hellebores owe their beauty to the fact that they are crosses between the Lenten Roses (Helleborus x hybridus) and Christmas Roses (Helleborus niger). The true magic of Helleborus HGC® Lola is unveiled through its exquisite flowers, gracing the garden from late Winter to early Spring. These blooms present a delicate symphony of colours, ranging from soft pinks to creamy whites, adorned with intricately veined petals that evoke festive nostalgia. Lola's nodding blossoms lend an air of enchantment to shaded areas, elevating the garden's grace during the colder months. Helleborus HGC® Lola's beauty extends indoors. Its blooms possess the power to infuse indoor spaces with elegance. Whether showcased in vases, arrangements, or as solitary accents, Lola's flowers offer a graceful reminder of the splendour of Winter. Indoors, Lola's cut flowers allow you to craft captivating arrangements that mirror the enchantment of your Winter landscape.

Planting Conditions

Hellebore HGC® Lola thrives in partial to full shade, making it a perfect choice for those shadier spots in your garden. Ensure the planting area has well-draining soil rich in organic matter. Space the plants around 18 to 24 inches apart to give them room to flourish. With its preference for cooler temperatures, this plant is well-suited for woodland gardens or as a border plant. Once established, it's remarkably low-maintenance, making it an excellent addition to gardens of varying sizes. Prepare your Hellebore HGC® Lola with the right conditions, and let this Winter beauty work its magic.

Watering & Feeding

Hellebore HGC® Lola prefers consistent soil moisture, especially during its growing period. Water deeply when the top inch of soil feels dry, but avoid waterlogging. Mulching helps retain moisture. Feeding is simple – apply a balanced, slow-release fertiliser in early Spring as new growth emerges. Avoid excessive fertilisation, as it can lead to leggy growth. This resilient plant doesn't demand constant attention; its low-maintenance nature allows you to enjoy its enchanting beauty without fuss. Just remember, a bit of watering and feeding care will ensure Hellebore HGC® Lola continues to reign supreme in your garden.

General Care

Hellebore HGC® Lola is a low-maintenance gem that shines in your garden. Plant it in well-drained soil with partial to full shade. Water consistently, especially during dry spells, while avoiding waterlogged conditions. Apply a balanced slow-release fertiliser in early Spring to nourish its growth. Deadhead spent flowers for continued blooming and prune any damaged leaves. This hellebore variety is deer-resistant and generally free from serious pests or diseases. Celebrate its Winter blooms by cleaning up old leaves in late Winter to make way for new growth. With minimal effort, Hellebore HGC® Lola will reward you with enchanting beauty year after year.
